    Спасибо за хорошую подачу материала 👍 Получился отличный набор для кухни ❤

  2. イエンスヨハンセン on April 18, 2022 at 6:11 pm

    Wait — whaaat? My favourite speakers are 50ish cm tall mini towers made of 20mm red oak material. I finished them with (several, I don’t remember how many) layers of shellac, and they have a wonderful deep red brown almost burry type texture that simmers in sunlight. I wish I could post pictures in comments, but anyway, I can’t believe you felt the need to stain yours black… in fairness yours did look like some particularly white red oak…

  3. mellowfellow9 on April 18, 2022 at 6:11 pm

    @8:00 you already have ‘feet’ for the tray. those half circle off cuts! Yeah, they are a little chunky but at least you didn’t have to buy anything 😛

  4. Ryan Wildman on April 18, 2022 at 6:14 pm

    Great projects! Silly question, what did you use to finish each project?

    Bravo porfek

  7. Andrew M Yasso on April 18, 2022 at 6:17 pm

    I tried making the octagon serving tray, and failed miserably. But it was really fun, and I think I’m going to give it a second go with some of the things I learned.

  8. صلاح الخليف on April 18, 2022 at 6:19 pm

    We miss you 😔💔

  9. Winter Soldier on April 18, 2022 at 6:21 pm

    Love the projects! Could use the leftover walnut half circles for handles on a tray. 🤔

  10. Nick Magma on April 18, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    The glue issue with the scoop may have been the fault of the glue itself. I´ve heard blacktail studios say you should only use TB Original for walnut

  11. Robert Ituarte on April 18, 2022 at 6:26 pm

    Tamar – Thanks for creating such beautiful and practical pieces. I enjoy seeing your techniques and ideas for inspiration on my own projects. I’ve used some portions of your designs in the past to test my abilities and tools to create my own pieces. Looking forward to experimenting and testing my abilities by creating a cheese, cracker, baguette cutting and mini knife block tray using magnets. Have a great and safe Christmas/New Year celebration.

  12. Darin on April 18, 2022 at 6:28 pm


  13. George Bedsaul on April 18, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    To cut angled baguettes, pick a cut on one side and one several spaces down on the other. Set your guide to match that angle and add those cuts with the saw.

  14. ElCidPhysics90 on April 18, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    What application do you use for making the paper templates?

  15. Kerry Davies on April 18, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    Thank you for the amazing Christmas ideas. Keep up the inspiring work. Merry Christmas

  16. Edu Ferrone on April 18, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    great pieces. congratulations.
    however need your help. got table saw dewalt dwe7485 which apparently is same as yours.
    couldn’t find a link for the spare blades. do you have one (link)?

    keep it up and se you at your next project.

  17. die Tanni on April 18, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    So cool 😀👍👍👍👍

  18. Mike Wharton on April 18, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    loved the A Night at the Roxbury reference

  19. Giorgio Chiappini on April 18, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    I always though I’ve subscribed in these years, always gave it for granted… well just realized I haven’t, sorry about that 🙏

  20. Anne Zimmerman on April 18, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    Fun video…sorry I missed the contest!

  21. Mariano Wess on April 18, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    You’re amazing wood artist !!!!! Tks!!!!

  22. merle glass on April 18, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    Your work is fabulous and your videos are fabulous also. I love that you are so talented and teach this stuff so well.

  23. Cat Gynt on April 18, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    I do not know what you pay for your wood blanks, but I saw this video and thought of your channel. Perhaps there is an opportunity for you to reduce your costs and score some great wood resources. https://youtu.be/wV2PX7ZboNY Enjoy and learn things

  24. versatile duplicity on April 18, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    16:12 wow, I love it 😍

  25. LewHarriman on April 18, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    For the "future feet" of the serving tray; perhaps ½" lengths of ½" diameter walnut dowels – offcuts from your knife block project. (or simply square dowels) Then glue thin cork disks or squares to the ends that contact the table? Yeah, I know… no cork sheeting on hand for this project. But for the future, it’s available in rolls at any Ace hardware store and it’s great, great stuff for firm-yet-gentle feet.

  26. ralph jurgen on April 18, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    these holiday gift ideas are only for people you like… for the rest they can get generic gifts like socks 🙂

  27. Jorge Garbin on April 18, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    excelentes proyectos…

  28. charles shyne on April 18, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    I love that food tray at the end so much!

  29. Alexander Wardrope on April 18, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    Simple, haven’t got any machines?

  30. Werner Goos on April 18, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    So simple, and you use up what laying around, at first I thought the baguette tray was Ebony, which would be very cool especially with some Padouk or Zebrawood, maybe a project for something else 😉

  31. moises luna on April 18, 2022 at 6:52 pm


  32. MrJh66sh on April 18, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    https://youtu.be/aKu-kWjd4mY another way to make your cove cut on a table saw . Great video and xmas gift ideas thanks Jason

  33. BronkBuilt on April 18, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    Great job! Really love the Geometric Serving Platter.

  34. Pieter Minnaar on April 18, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    Excellent!! Beautiful and looks like lots of fun.

  35. EcoCentric Homestead on April 18, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    18:02 That curve could be cut out using the table saw.

  36. ArmanZ D.I.Y. on April 18, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    As always..great projects Tamar..those nitty bitty thinking of yours makes your viewers drop their jaws😃

  37. Seema Hejazi on April 18, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    Have you considered getting into puzzle making? Your work is so clean, I think you’d kick ass at it!

  38. 479kdk on April 18, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    great work but if you have access or own all of these tools, you’re probably not looking for "easy" projects

  39. Kekoa Kawakami on April 18, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    Nice upload! Maybe it’s just my bah humbugness but these gift idea videos that have felt increasingly repetitive and dull but I found these projects surprisingly unique and creative..

    But here’s a condensed version of the directions for each project in case you’re in a rush and even more of a Scrooge than me..

    Project 1: past template, rough cut then flush trim with router..

    Project 2: past template, rough cut then flush trim with router..

    Project 3: past template, rough cut then flush trim with router..

    Project 4: past template, rough cut then flush trim with router..

    Project 5: past template, rough cut then flush trim with router..

    Haha but seriously, don’t be a jerk and just watch the video… it stands out in a group of videos where it isn’t easy to do so and is by a creator who’s worth supporting..


  40. Duncan on April 18, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    Fun video. What finish do you recommend that is suitable for food service (including washing up afterward), eg, on that cracker tray? Thanks.

  41. Ron Miller on April 18, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    Very nice builds. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and tips.

  42. Doug White on April 18, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    I love the tray and have pieces cut using your suggested thick start (1.9" cherry for me). I am really struggling to figure out the "hog out the center" part. Does your bull nose bit have a bearing to use against the template? How would you continue going deeper – like 1-1/4"? Is the preference to use a guide bushing with a straight bit to get the inside started (multiple passes to get as deep as I can with that bit)? I am struggling to understand how I will use a template or guide for that bullnose at the bottom. Any thoughts/help is appreciated.

  43. Kakarot Jone on April 18, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    Your channel is very encouraging and I like your style. Please keep it up. Thanks

  44. Joe Hicks on April 18, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    I love your videos. You have inspired me to start learning woodworking. Thank you.

  45. Peyman sheikhchi on April 18, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Very nice!! Could you please tell roughly how much time did you spend on every project?

  46. Twisted Post on April 18, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    I love the serving Tray! Beautiful Piece..

  47. Safina Flipse on April 18, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    She is so underrated this is the kinda productive stuff that should be all of YouTube

  48. Trebek115 on April 18, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    What’s the plexiglass base on your router you used to cut the circle?

  49. charles johnson on April 18, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    Very Nice and thank you soooooo much for making the templates available on your website.

  50. Nest2309 on April 18, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    I love everything u do☺️and I would love to post my project pictures for aria contest but mine I would start @ the 22nd or 23rd🤷🏻‍♂️… and last but not least is that’s black band aid @ your finger or electrical tape?
